I tried a few markets around Austin but I can't find Aji Dulce (sweet chili peppers) for a sofrito. Does anyone know a place that usually has them, in forest hills, or close to an E,F,V,R subway stop?
I tried a few places in Jackson Heights, too, around 82nd.
Most hispanic food in Jackson Heights seems South American, and Mexican in Forest Hills. Does anyone know a market that caters more to carribean (Puerto Rico, Cuba) cooking?
While I'm at it does anyone know a place in Queens to get
real pork lard, not the hydrogenated stuff.
Faicco's off West 4th is a long way away.
